Opioid (Heroin) Detox Program

“Opioid Addiction Is a National Crisis”

Opiate are available in many forms such as Heroin, Narco, Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Percocet, Fentanyl, Methadone, etc.

Since 1990, the use of opioids and overdose deaths involving opioids have reached epidemic proportions. Opioid use disorder can involve the misuse of prescribed opioid medications, use of diverted opioid medications, or use of illicitly obtained heroin.

Opioids are used medically for pain relief, but also have central nervous system depressant effects as well as the potential to cause euphoria. Opioids can act on any of the three main opioid receptors (mu, kappa, delta). Activation of mu receptors results in the typical opioid effects including analgesia, euphoria and respiratory depression.

Due to the high risk of physiologic dependence and tolerance to opioids, this type of disorder is typically a chronic, relapsing illness, associated with significantly increased rates of morbidity and mortality. Many medical conditions can result from opioid use which includes, but are not limited to infection (i.e. cellulitis, localized abscess, HIV, hepatitis C and hepatitis B, opioid-induced constipation, increased sensitivity to pain, and overdose.

Opioid withdrawal symptoms include dysphoria, restlessness, rhinorrhea, sweating, myalgias, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Therefore, a mainstay of treatment includes a supervised withdrawal. Further goals in your treatment are achieving abstinence and preventing withdrawal.

Majority of people start using opiate in form of pills and later switch to more deadly form such as fentanyl, heroin. First, they take orally then they switch to smoking, snorting, IV, resulting in sudden death. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid known for high potency than even morphine and heroin. Until and unless you want to ease the pain from some major surgery, fentanyl will bring little good to your body and mind. As a matter of fact, fentanyl is prescribed for a short period at a very small dosage to avoid any kind of dependency. Majority of overdose death is due to fentanyl. It is easily produced and now drug dealers/producers are mixing it with other drugs, without caring for human life, sadly. In the recent past, there have been many death reported from Fentanyl overdose. There has been lot of contamination reported with other substances.

Opioids like fentanyl can control not only your body but your entire nervous system as well. It might seem normal initially. But within hours of the last dosage, the withdrawal symptoms are very severe and result in extreme behaviors. Before your family suffers the consequences, it is time for you to enroll into the fentanyl detox program at the Bella Nirvana Center.
